Anyone any idea if the bond for the 737 Max ( ie NLH) is the same deal as for the 787 ie. you make a deposit of €40,000/30,000/20,000
depending on current type?

£18000/3 year bond. But nothing paid upfront. Contract is with OSM not Rishworth.

Hi guys, Just a question.

I’m type rated FO on 73 and last January I applied for Relief Captain 787 and also for 737.
I did the online assessment and after that I received an email from NORWEGIAN Pilot recruitment Team Asking me to fill a form due to new recruitment procces. This mail was on last January 22nd. I send back the form and from that day I have no news from NORWEGIAN.

What can I expect? Do you think guys Should I write an email or just wait. What’s the next step? How fast is going the recruitment?

There’s 11 new 787s coming this year, a requirement for lots more pilots

I haven't been there but I doubt any US based crews stay there. That place wouldn't even comply with the flight attendant contractual standards. If a 3 star motel/inn on the side of the freeway is acceptable to you after a long haul trip, then enjoy.

Korean love the Park Inn.
Infact all their hotels are low ball 3 star.
Don’t expect to get a interruption free rest . Ear plugs mandatory.

They don’t use the “Inn” they stay in somewhere quite nice in OAK.

From a Norwegian schedule posted on this thread.... 20FEB16 - 23FEB16 Holiday Inn Oakland Airport OAK

I wouldn't call the Holiday Inn Oakland airport nice for anything except a quick sleepover. A block or two away is basically gangland.

That was a while back, they have changed a few hotels, they are actually quite nice and refurbished rooms etc, some you are located in the heart of the city (New York).

With patterns of potentially 3 weeks away , this good to hear !
Airport hotels are one thing , 24/7 commings and goings & slamming doors
. Never ideal for crew rest

To be honest if you're young and just starting out then maybe, but all things considered the whole deal/lifestyle prospects don't look too good to me. I' d rather be in the middle east.
To each his own, sure enough..but if this is the future of long haul then mmmmh

Rosters

Any changes to the rosters! I was told it was initially the 'W' style roster but wondering if it has changed.

Does anybody know if they have actually started basing pilots out of Fort Lauderdale? I have heard they are short and not quite sure what is going on there. Is it just European crews taking care of those flights for now?

Im hearing massive delays in the training department from a pilot currently on his TR with Norwegian to be FLL based in Florida.

Are pilots able to average say a 4 on 3 off type schedule over a month? Whats the longest one canexpect to be away?

Norwegian might be re-examining its plans to base 787 pilots in Del Boca Vista, FL or anywhere else in the US for that matter.

The Railway Labor Act of 1926 permits transportation workers to join a union, have representation and negotiate a collective agreement with the airline (their real employer) - Link:

https://www.legal.com/labor-employme...way-labor-act/

Via the Railway Act, Norwegian’s US based 787 cabin crew voted to join and be represented by the AFL-CIO, Association of Flight Attendants union – Link:

http://cabinassociation.org/wp-conte...ss-Release.pdf

Norwegian’s US based pilots should seriously consider following the lead of the flight attendants. In addition to union representation and collective bargaining rights with the airline, their commuting may become easier.

Thank you for your diagnosis Dr. OMDB30R (someone please tell him a Spanish ATPL does not substitute a medical degree).

Perhaps the apparent stall in Norwegian’s 787 US basing’s is not due to possible union worries, but to its financial situation. E24 news 16/2/18:

“Bank Norwegian is giving Norwegian new losses this year”

“They [the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority] are now investigating the airline’s accounting treatment of the ownership interest in the consumer bank and the parent company Norwegian Finans Holding”

“The question is whether Norwegian has so much control over the bank that the airline must account for the ownership interest in the bank in relation to the bank’s book equity”

“In that case, the value would be almost two billion lower than what was stated in the 2017 accounts”

“It would have almost halved the airlines equity”

Article link: https://e24.no/boers-og-finans/norwe...i-aar/24261704

Please provide other answers, if you have them, to assist those in making their choice to apply.

Sorry but as you are good at finding sources do you actually have any source of an "apparent stall in Norwegian’s 787 US basing’s" or not?

Bondi

When Norwegian goes tits up you can say "I told you so" but until it happens why don't you just shut the up as no-one is interested in your rants

Be cautious of what Bondi says, as I say this person is a simple nutter and hopefully does not hold any form of “real” license, all this person does is copy and paste......classic looser.

Bondi you are welcome for the diagnosis which wasn’t difficult at all, now I would recommend you get some overdue therapy and I don’t propose to enter into any further discussion with you.
